Stir-up Sunday has been and gone but its not too late to make a Christmas treat for our equine friends! How about a Christmas Pudding designed specially for horses and ponies. No real cooking skills required – what could be better?!
- 500g brown sugar
- 1 mug of bran
- 2 mugs of chaff
- 1 grated apple
- 1 big carrot grated
- 1 small tin of black treacle
plus, you can add a mug of mix if you feed it.
Heat up sugar and treacle until it’s all melted, the simply stir in the rest of the ingredients – you may need to add little more chaff or bran so it is very thick. Spoon it into a container – ideally a flapjack tray and leave it to set. In our experience we recommend keeping these into small biscuit like sizes so they are easy to “serve” – one large traditional Xmas Pud lump is a nightmare to slice!
Remember to feed with great care to horses with a sugar intolerance such as laminitics.
